All parents want the best for their children.They want their children to be happy and to flourish. They want them to live out their dreams and reach their potential.

Happier children are healthier, learn better and display more emotional literacy. Emotional literacy is important for developing self-confidence, boosting self-esteem, social and emotional development, and encouraging emotional self-management.
At Coworth Flexlands we focus on the 'whole' child - their intellectual, physical, social and emotional wellbeing needs, The whole child approach works on the basis that every child should be happy, healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged to grow in their educational environment. We promote a culture that ensures pupils are given time to develop their interests and learn the wider skills required of them in a safe and supportive environment, while still being academically engaged and challenged.
Coworth Flexlands is ideally located in acres of beautiful grounds on the Surrey/Berkshire borders with a forest school for outdoor learning and a wide range of facilities and opportunities. It is a happy school where pupils are inspired and nurtured. Happiness and positivity can make a huge difference to a child’s wellbeing and achievement.
